Insights into 2021 - New Year, New Plans

Miljan
23 Dec, 2020

Another year is ending and, setting aside the global challenges we are all facing, it was a good year for ZOOlanders. We took the opportunity with YOOtheme Pro as we once did with ZOO, and brought to life creative solutions that soon enough became essential for this wonderful ecosystem. Thank you for the trust and commitment you have all given us.

The year ahead marks our 10th anniversary, and following our tendency to simplify our solutions we are officially announcing changes effective as of 1st of January 2021. But before we get into all details, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all!

Essentials for ZOO

ZOOessentials, ZOOlingual and ZOOfilter are, statistically speaking, the most important set of features for ZOO; we are therefore giving them priority on the ZOO 4 transition and are currently the only ones planned to support YOOtheme Pro. The rest of the extensions will follow and update right after with basic ZOO 4 support.

Most importantly, all ZOO products are being merged and rebranded as Essentials for ZOO which better aligns with our new development and distribution workflow.

Essentials for YOOtheme Pro

Following our new direction, we will keep improving our essential addons for YOOtheme Pro and developing new ones, making sure the overall experience with YOOtheme Pro keeps getting better and better.

Released back in September, it's time to end the launching price promotion and present the new, per platform plans, with either 6 months or 1 year of updates and support. Each of these gives you access to all current and future addons for YOOtheme Pro. And we already have a new and exciting Addon we are working on and will be sharing more about this in January!

The Plans

We don’t usually do renewal discounts or temporal coupons. Instead, we want you to enjoy the right prices always and renew only when necessary. For these reasons, and for those who want it all, we are introducing a new Developer plan that covers both ZOO and YOOtheme Pro addons, for all platformsThe final summary looking as follows:

 

    6 Months plan 1 Year plan
Essentials for ZOO
Access to all addons for ZOO
  -- 89€
       
Essentials for YOOtheme
Access to all addons for YOOtheme Pro per platform, Joomla or WordPress
  49€ 79€
       
Developer
Access to all products and platforms
  --  149€

simply too expensive

Hi! It would be interesting for us to know what is too expensive in your opinion.
We lowered the ZOO products to 1/3rd of the price they were before, and the price entrypoint for YOOessentials is the same as before, just with a shorter duration,...

Hi! It would be interesting for us to know what is too expensive in your opinion.
We lowered the ZOO products to 1/3rd of the price they were before, and the price entrypoint for YOOessentials is the same as before, just with a shorter duration, and the yearly subscription has a great discount on it.
Also, we have a great support history (at least from what other users tell us), so the price includes this, and we have to keep the standard up :)

Thanks for your comments, we are always looking on making things better!

ZL products are solidly built and are Essential (if I may use the word) YOOtheme development tools.

I appreciate the hard work and ongoing development by the ZL team and look forward to future enhancements.

Thank you Robert, we appreciate your kind works!
Yes, we intentionally lowered the developer (and zoo) prices to make them as affordable as we can, based on the recent support history.

Thanks again!

Does the Developer subscription include unlimited sites? Zoolingual is included? Zoolingual currently costs € 299 per year for unlimited sites which is simply ridiculous. An add-on cannot be more expensive than the base software.

Hi Miguel, yes, the developer subscription includes unlimited sites and every product we have.
ZOOlingual currently costs 49€ (1 site) and the developer is for unlimited sites as well, and the sites limit was on support only, not the license on...

Hi Miguel, yes, the developer subscription includes unlimited sites and every product we have.
ZOOlingual currently costs 49€ (1 site) and the developer is for unlimited sites as well, and the sites limit was on support only, not the license on the product itself.

So yes, the current Developer subsciption is half the price for more stuff, since it includes everything in the previous Developer plan plus all the new Essentials for YOOtheme Pro products.

Hope this clarifies it!

HI
We just paid for Developer subscription € 299.00 and then Essentials YOOtheme Pro subscription € 49.00 a couple of weeks ago...

Do we get refound now, when I see price is € 149.00 for both?

Feel I got cheated :-(

BTW i REALLY hope you will update ZOOMailing to acymailing 6.x (now on version 7.0x) :)

Working with YT Pro, Zoo and acymailing (a super powerful combo of 3 major extensions) the lack of integration between ZOO4 and Acymailing is a really big (manual) bottleneck in an otherwise super dynamic and automated setup.

Is that something that is on the planning table or being considered?

I really need and I think others are using this extension combo and missing your old ZOOMailing magic, and it would be a great extra selling point for your Zooessentials package.

You do great work and I really appreciate your quality and feature-rich extensions. I have been using your products for several years in different units, and I can´t wait to take this new big step into dynamic content with YT Pro, ZOO4, YTEssentials & ZOOEssentials, What a powerful suite.

Thank you for your feedback Morten, indeed we are gonna review the posibilities and viability of AcyMailing 6 and above integration. We don't have any estimate time, though.
